URGENT! Our shelter is in crisis. The increase in dogs and cats has skyrocketed expenses. Public aid only covers 11% of the annual costs, and private donations are not enough. Our facilities are collapsing, and the animals are stressed. We owe over 10,000 euros to veterinarians, and the bills keep increasing. In May alone, we received 37 dogs. PLEASE, HELP US (donate, become a member, volunteer, or foster)

Taizon is one of those dogs who really touches your heart and quickly becomes your best friend. He’s super outgoing and docile at the same time. He loves being in contact with people, getting petted, and playing with them. Moreover, he enjoys being taught new things and learns very quickly. He’s super obedient and good! The poor guy is getting older at 9 years old already, and it’s urgent that he finds a family.

What we can’t understand is how such a loyal and affectionate dog could have such a devastating story. We found Taizon at the municipal garbage dump after a worker alerted us that there was a dog wandering around there alone. Someone had abandoned him among the debris as if they were discarding a bag of trash. We can’t fathom this level of cruelty.

Even though he’s almost 8 years old, he loves going for walks and is still very playful. As you can see in the photos, he adores his ball! During walks, Taizon usually gets along with other dogs, but the truth is that he doesn’t show much interest in them. It would be ideal for the person who adopts him to have experience with dogs and know how to read canine body language to determine if Taizon wants to interact with a stranger dog or not. However, what interests him the most is people: being loved and adored by all the humans around him.

We’re looking for a family that is just as willing to take him on adventures and walks as to relax with him quietly on the couch. Although Taizon doesn’t seek conflict with other dogs, we would prefer him to be the only dog in the house so he can finally receive all the love and attention he hasn’t had in recent years.

Taizon is an American Staffordshire Terrier, and dogs of this breed are considered Potentially Dangerous Dogs (PPP), so the future adopter will need to have the corresponding license, although it’s easy to obtain, and he is absolutely worth it.


All animals available for adoption have a microchip and passport. They have been tested for common diseases (Leishmania for dogs, FeLV and FIP for cats). Adult animals are fully vaccinated and castrated.
